EQ'd to bring out lowest lows and make the highs a little crisper too, since I

recorded further back than most.

I didn't keep a detailed list of who was on and off when in this set. It mostly

featured all of Ratdog and Phil and Friends, excepting of course for Robin

Sylvester, the Ratdog bassist. The first time I noticed anyone leave the stage

was Bobby leaving when Jackie sang "Sugaree". Various comings and goings

from then, with only Phil and Mark Karan on for every song. Wish I could

hear the pedal steel better!

It's January 6, 2008 and no-one has torrented a version of this show. Mine is

flawed by missing a little of "Uncle John's Band", due to battery problems,

sorry. I hope you'll upgrade to a more perfect copy when one is available, but

this should be out there by now. And the recording sounds good enough to

enjoy the show... Thanks Tucker and Sabrina for saving the great seats!

Please DON'T upload this to the Live Music Archive, I'm sure there will be

better versions soon from the floor, and if not, I want to patch in the missing

bits later. Flaw occurred 8.59 into UJB. Sounds like I didn't miss much of

the song...

2014-01-28 update: Well done Peter! Now no-one else has heard this,

because no-one else uploaded a version to the LMA. Doing so now. Wish I'd

eq'd it different, but so it goes, no longer have the source files. Sounds pretty

decent. Happy belated NYE!
